Genesis 1:26 KJV

Genesis 1:26 NLT

1)    Every Good Thing Comes From God.

Isaiah 55:10 MKJV

“For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven, And do not return there. . .”

James 1:17 AMPC

“Every good gift and every perfect (free, large, full) gift is from above; it comes down from the Father of all [that gives] light, in [the shining of] Whom there can be no variation [rising or setting] or shadow cast by His turning [as in an eclipse].”

2)    Everything God Created Contains The Ability To Bless Mankind.

Psalm 55:10 NKJV

“. . .But water the earth, And make it bring forth and bud, That it may give seed to the sower And bread to the eater.”

Romans 11:29 AMPC

“For God’s gifts and His call are irrevocable. [He never withdraws them when once they are given, and He does not change His mind about those to whom He gives His grace or to whom He sends His call.]”

3)    God Has Always Used Words To Create His Desired Result.

Isaiah 55:11 NKJV

So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth. . .”

Romans 10:17 AMPC

“So faith comes by hearing [what is told], and what is heard comes by the preaching [of the message that came from the lips] of Christ (the Messiah Himself).”

4) Our Success Is Tied To Speaking The Word Of God.

Isaiah 55:11 NKJV

“It shall not return to Me void, But it shall accomplish what I please, And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.”

My fine wife Bev says:

“A prayer never prayed will never be answered.”

2 Corinthians 9:8 CEV

“God can bless you with everything you need, and you will always have more than enough to do all kinds of good things for others.”

“Heavenly Father, I praise you that my possibilities are unlimited. . .I have more than enough. . .I have everything I need to do good things for others . . . and rejoice that the only thing fixed in my life is my focus on You and Your personal promises for my success in the Word of God.  I rejoice that soon I will be functioning in the end-time office of the giver.  Hallelujah.  Amen.” 

5) Speaking Words Of Faith Positions Us For The Release Of Supernatural Joy Into Our Lives.

Isaiah 55:12 NKJV

“For you shall go out with joy, And be led out with peace; The mountains and the hills Shall break forth into singing before you, And all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.”

Romans 15:13 AMPC

“May the God of your hope so fill you with all joy and peace in believing [through the experience of your faith] that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound and be overflowing (bubbling over) with hope.”

Nehemiah 8:10 KJV

“. . .neither be ye sorry; for the joy of the Lord is your strength.”

6) God Instructs His People.

Numbers 13:1-3 NIV

“The LORD said to Moses, 2 "Send some men to explore the land of Canaan, which I am giving to the Israelites. From each ancestral tribe send one of its leaders." 3 So at the LORD's command Moses sent them out from the Desert of Paran. All of them were leaders of the Israelites.”

Psalm 90:17 NLT

“And may the Lord our God show us his approval and make our efforts successful. Yes, make our efforts successful!”

2 Timothy 3:16-17 AMPC

Every Scripture is God-breathed (given by His inspiration) and profitable for instruction, for reproof and conviction of sin, for correction of error and discipline in obedience, [and] for training in righteousness (in holy living, in conformity to God's will in thought, purpose, and action), So that the man of God may be complete and proficient, well fitted and thoroughly equipped for every good work.”

7) Listen For Specific Instructions.

Numbers 3:17-20 NIV

“When Moses sent them to explore Canaan, he said, "Go up through the Negev and on into the hill country. 18 See what the land is like and whether the people who live there are strong or weak, few or many. 19 What kind of land do they live in? Is it good or bad? What kind of towns do they live in? Are they unwalled or fortified? 20 How is the soil? Is it fertile or poor? Are there trees on it or not? Do your best to bring back some of the fruit of the land." (It was the season for the first ripe grapes.)”

8) Be Quick To Obey The Voice Of The Lord.

Numbers 13:21-25 NIV

So they went up and explored the land from the Desert of Zin as far as Rehob, toward Lebo Hamath. 22 They went up through the Negev and came to Hebron, where Ahiman, Sheshai and Talmai, the descendants of Anak, lived. (Hebron had been built seven years before Zoan in Egypt.) 23 When they reached the Valley of Eshcol, they cut off a branch bearing a single cluster of grapes. Two of them carried it on a pole between them, along with some pomegranates and figs. 24 That place was called the Valley of Eshcol because of the cluster of grapes the Israelites cut off there. 25 At the end of forty days they returned from exploring the land.”

Delayed obedience is disobedience.

John 16:13 AMPC

“But when He, the Spirit of Truth (the Truth-giving Spirit) comes, He will guide you into all the Truth (the whole, full Truth). For He will not speak His own message [on His own authority]; but He will tell whatever He hears [from the Father; He will give the message that has been given to Him], and He will announce and declare to you the things that are to come [that will happen in the future].”

9) Look For The Positive Things In Your Life.

Numbers 13:26-29 NIV

“They came back to Moses and Aaron and the whole Israelite community at Kadesh in the Desert of Paran. There they reported to them and to the whole assembly and showed them the fruit of the land. 27 They gave Moses this account: "We went into the land to which you sent us, and it does flow with milk and honey! Here is its fruit. 28 But the people who live there are powerful, and the cities are fortified and very large. We even saw descendants of Anak there. 29 The Amalekites live in the Negev; the Hittites, Jebusites and Amorites live in the hill country; and the Canaanites live near the sea and along the Jordan."

10) Make A Bold Declaration Of Faith.

Numbers 13:30 NIV

“Then Caleb silenced the people before Moses and said, "We should go up and take possession of the land, for we can certainly do it."

11) Understand That Others Will Not Always See What You See.

Numbers 13:31-32 NIV

“But the men who had gone up with him said, "We can't attack those people; they are stronger than we are." 32 And they spread among the Israelites a bad report about the land they had explored. They said, "The land we explored devours those living in it. All the people we saw there are of great size.”

12) Refuse To Become A Grasshopper In Your Own Sight.

Numbers 13:33 NIV

“We saw the Nephilim there (the descendants of Anak come from the Nephilim). We seemed like grasshoppers in our own eyes, and we looked the same to them."
